Defendant's sentence for theft of public money of two years' probation, conditioned on 240 hours of community service, is affirmed where: 1) it was reasonable for the presentence report to recommend, and the district court to agree, that the sanction for defendant's offense needed to be more than losing his right to hunt; and 2) the sentence was not procedurally unreasonable because little explanation was required for a within-guidelines sentence.
